Safety of EasyPass master password
« on: February 13, 2015, 05:34:54 AM »
The documentation states that the master password is kept in memory inside the EasyPass PC application after it has been entered and before it times out and is erased.  At entry and during the timeout interval it is vulnerable to discovery.  A keystroke logger could capture it and/or it could be retirieved from the memory of EasyPass.  With only one password protecting the "keys to the kingdom" what protects the master password?  Is free Avast anti-virus enough?

Hi Gary
You are probably already aware but Generally speaking, nothing is ever 100% protected all of the time.
However, there are precautions and a layered security profile that can serve to protect your data/passwords and Master Passwords in different ways.
Precautions like "isolated Browsers", SafeZone for example, and others that protect against 'screen capture' techniques and
 "Anti Keyloggers" such as KeyScrambler and Zemana Anti KeyScrambler to name just 2, that protect against any Key logging.
